DescriptionRichard Crossman, on the body of a fox, bursts through a hedge pursued by a pack of ferocious dogs. In the distance, Edward Heath can be seen leading the hunt on horseback, although he appears to be going in the wrong direction. Harold Wilson, depicted as a rabbit, appears by the hedge as a concerned onlooker. In the upper right, a hole has been cut from the cartoon which once contained Edward Heath. Instead, he has now been relocated to a more central position in the scene.
